/* G-Wrap C pointer object system funcs ****************************/

/** Wrapped C type funcs **/

/* create a new wrapped C type.  Returns the new gw:wct on success,
   and #f on other failure.

   equal_p - should return SCM_BOOL_F if the two objects should be
   considered equal, anything else, otherwise.

   If set to NULL, then by default, the objects are equal? only if
   their wcp types and wcp ptrs match.

   If you do specify an equal_p function, it will only be called
   if the two objects' wcp types match, but their pointers don't.

   print - should return non-zero on success.  If the function sets
   use_default_print_p to non-zero value, then the default wcp
   printer will be invoked on return, and this function's return
   value will be ignored.  If print is set to NULL, a default
   representation will be printed.  Note that it is your
   responsibility to make sure you don't try to print a destroyed C
   pointer.  The wcp's scm_data might be useful for keeping track in
   cases where the scheme side doesn't wholly own the pointer...
  
   mark - should mark any scheme data stored in the c pointer.  As a
   convenience, any scheme object returned by this function will
   also be marked.  You do not need to mark the wcp's scm_data,
   that will be handed for you.  If this is set to NULL, only the
   scm_data will be marked.

   cleanup - should destroy the c-side pointer as appropriate.  If
   set, will be called at garbage collection time.  You do not
   need to worry about the scm_data here.  If possible, this
   function should return the amount of space reclaimed.  Also
   note that you don't need to do anything about SCM data inside
   (say in a struct) your C ptr.  It won't be marked and will be
   collected automagically.  Basically, you just need to worry
   about anything you malloced/gnewed/etc. when you created the
   wcp's data.
